In their letters of rebuttal directed at me, Robert McBroom ("There's no denying global warming truth," Jan. 13) and Don Gately ("Evidence for global warming undeniable," Jan. 17) resort to the same tired "the debate is over" stance we saw from former Vice President Al Gore, which was also directed at Galileo when he was excommunicated by the Catholic church for bucking the established science of the day, which held that the universe revolved around the Earth.
